Digi images in honor of Ethan Weiman for the Make a Wish foundation

Hello everybody,

This post is a more serious one I'm affraid:

Pink Cat Studio is releasing these new digital stamps today to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in honor of Ethan Weiman. Little Ethan passed away at the age of only four on June 12th from Neuroblastoma cancer. Ethan was a true cowboy and loved horses, balloons and Knock Knock jokes. By purchasing these digital stamps you will help brighten the day of a sick child as the money we raise will go toward making one of their dreams come true.

Please visit to purchase these digital stamps and help the Make-A-Wish Foundation.


Dit is een wat serieuzer bericht ben ik bang:

Pink Cat Studio brengt deze nieuwe digitale stempels vandaag op de markt om geld te verzamelen voor de (Amerikaanse) Doe een Wens Stichting ter ere van Ethan Weiman. Kleine Ethan is op 12 juni jl. op slechts vier jarige leeftijd overleden aan Neuroblastoma kanker. Ethan was een echte cowboy en hij was dol op paarden, ballonnen en grapjes. Door deze digitale stempels te kopen zul je wat zonneschijn brengen in een dag van een ziek kind, omdat het geld dat wordt opgehaald wordt gebruikt om hun dromen uit te laten komen.

Bezoek alsjeblieft om deze digitale stempels te kopen en de (Amerikaanse) Doe een Wens Stichting te helpen.


I was so touched by the story of Little Ethan Weiman and his family. Of course I don't know the people but I have seen his picture and he was such a gorgeous little boy. I have a four year old myself and I couldn't imagine losing her. It is not fair that little children are taken away from us like this. I want to wish the Weisman family a whole lot of strength and love in this time that has to be impossible to go through.

I did a card with the little cowgirl that Melissa named Ava after Ethan's sister.

And here is a close up of the cute little image.

All the materials I used to make this card are from the June card kit and add on by Card Art. And colouring as always with my Derwent Watercolour pencils, Copics and foam cubes for dimension.

Don't forget to visit to buy these lovely little stamps.

  2. Fabulous stamps, and a beautiful tribute to a special little boy.

    Your card is gorgeous, beautifully coloured.

  3. Wat een mooie manier om dit jongetje te moet er inderdaad niet aan denken om zelf een kind te verliezen.

    Prachtige kaart weer en oh die images zijn zó schattig. Weet je of ze misschien in de toekomst ook op rubber worden uitgegeven? Ik ben niet zo'n digi fan*Ü*(sorry)

  8. Fab card Mariska, love the cute image and your colouring and lo is gorgeous.

  9. I have one question... and its going to seem like i am totally clueless. I am new to making cards, loving it, however i am terrible at cutting out the stamp. How do you do such a great job?

  10. To, I have no idea how to contact you so I hope you read this:

    Thanks for the compliment! I'm hoping this is your actual e-mailadress. You asked about how I cut my stamps out. It is very important to have a good pair of scissors, of course not household scissors will do, you need special craft scissors that are designed to cut out very small things. I cut very carefully and after that I take a black fineliner and colour the edges of the paper. I did a tutorial on how I 3D my images where you can see the difference... that really does the trick. It takes some extra time but it makes the image look that much sharper when you're finished. You can find the tutorial when you click on tutorial under labels on the right side of my blog.

    I hope that helps, if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask, glad to help out a fellow stamper :).
